    The AirgainConnect FirstNet Ready AC-HPUE high power user equipment (HPUE) built for FirstNet® MegaRange™, delivers the maximum allowed radiated power directly to the LTE antenna elements. The uplink signal is the weakest link in the LTE connection, which can be problematic in fringe coverage areas or inside buildings such as parking structures. When the uplink is disconnected, the user gets no service in the downlink. AirgainConnect’s patented technology eliminates the loss over the coax cables from the vehicle router to the roof-mounted antenna, providing 10 times the transmit power when compared to the router’s conventional modem. The result is deeper building penetration and higher uplink data speeds at the edge of the network.

    AirgainConnect AC-HPUE 6-in-1 is a rugged outdoor mobile antenna with integrated modem, designed to meet the most demanding LTE connectivity needs of public safety and fleet vehicles. AC-HPUE provides two or three high gain multi-band LTE antennas and one band 14 LTE antenna powered by an HPUE LTE modem. AC-HPUE also supports two or three high gain tri-band Wi-Fi antennas, including the new 6 GHz ISM band for Wi-Fi 6E (802.11ax), and an active GNSS element inside a single robust and compact housing.

    AC-HPUE attaches to the router WAN port via Ethernet data cable or directly to a laptop via USB cable. Wi-Fi and GNSS antennas connect to the router just like all other Airgain fleet antennas. This means your router can be seamlessly used for Wi-Fi, location-based services, and managed using your existing network management system.
